NAME - Directory Server script for monitoring database and entry cache usage


[INCR=num] [SERVID=server_id][BINDDN=binddn] [BINDPW=password] [DBLIST=databases] [INDEXLIST=indexes] [VERBOSE=num]

DESCRIPTION is a tool used to monitor database and entry cache usage. It is especially useful for database cache and entry/dn cache tuning - how much space is left, is the cache full, how much space on average do I need per entry/dn.


It doesn't take any command line arguments, so all options must be passed in as environment variables. will loop repeatedly showing the db information until it is killed or Ctrl-C

All arguments are optional, but you will most likely have to provide BINDPW

INCR - show results every INCR seconds - default is 1 second
SERVID - Name of the server instance
BINDDN - DN to use to bind - must have permission to read everything under cn=config - default is cn=Directory Manager
BINDPW - password for BINDDN - default is secret
DBLIST - a list of databases you want to check - default is all ; for more than one, delimit with spaces e.g. DBLIST="one two three"
INDEXLIST - a list of indexes to show for each named database - default is none; specify all for all indexes, or named e.g. INDEXLIST="id2entry entryrdn"
VERBOSE - output level - 0 == suitable for parsing by a script - 1 == has column headings - 2 == provides detailed descriptions of the data - default is 0


INCR=1 SERVID=slapd-localhost BINDDN="cn=directory manager" BINDPW="secret" VERBOSE=2
